Hi everyone. New month…new block. I just love this one. So here it is Serendipity – Geese Block 2.
Oh Boy, did I have fun with hand quilting last week! I felt a physical sense of loss after I was done. Yet also, strangely enough, relief. It’s always nice when a chore turns out to be so much fun! I can’t wait for the next block to be finished. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sewing machine. But we are not always on the best of terms. And wrestling a bed-size quilt into a little 6-inch space doesn’t thrill me. Hand work just seems to suit me better. Although, I’ve noticed that I’m like a child and have to be entertained at every moment, so either the TV is on, or the radio, or I’m listening to a book, whatever. When the kids were small (and loud), I used to crave hand-stitching for the quiet and to escape. Now that they’re almost grown, I go crazy when it’s too quiet and crave background noise. Too funny! But stitching is still an escape.
I hope that the change of seasons brings welcome relief to you. I know it will for us. Yesterday was 104 degrees, so I’m looking forward to cooler weather.
